You guys know what “haul videos” are? I just found out not too long ago, so excuse me if you’re well ahead of the old men here at Holy Taco. Let’s put my elderly aunt-like trend spotting skills aside for a minute. Let’s focus on what’s important here: The fact that haul videos exist and they say so much about our culture. And sometimes, as with almost everything online that’s meant to be taken seriously, they can be accidentally funny.
If you’re not familiar with “Haul Videos,” here’s the basic gist: people go out and buy a bunch of crap, then they bring it back home, sit in fron tof their webcams and show it off. It’s funny/repulsive/sad. Just like the internet.
